Deaf Teachers of the Deaf- Q&A session for aspiring teachers

Posted in News

Are you thinking of becoming a teacher?

Come along to DToD’s online Q&A session on 19 August at 7pm-8pm

DToD is pleased to welcome two deaf teachers to our Q&A session, Simon Herdman and Liam McMulkin, who are recently qualified as primary and secondary teachers respectively.

They will share their experiences of studying on their PGDE/PGCE courses and teaching on school placements. They will be joined by Dr Audrey Cameron, a deaf PGDE tutor at Moray House School of Education and Sport at University of Edinburgh. They will also give tips and advice on how to apply for a teacher training course and DSA funding. Malcolm Sinclair, vice chair of DToD, will chair the session.

There will be BSL/English interpretation and captions.
